SCIgen - Automatic Computer Science Paper Generator

Jeremy Stribling has developed a program that produces computer science papers. What is even more impressive is the fact that one of his papers was accepted for "The 9th World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics." The whole thing echos "The Sokal Affair." When Alan Sokal published the nonsensical"Transgressing the Boundaries: Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity" in the academic journal "Social Text."

Both events are sources of interesting debate and cynicism. And are just plain funny...
